Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he really wants to help former Tottenham star Dele Alli after his career fell out of grace.

Mauricio Pochettino Reveals He Wants To Speak To Dele Alli

Pochettino previously coached Alli during their time together at Spurs and helped him became one of the most prolific midfielders in world football.

However, Dele Alli’s career has been in a dwindling state since the departure of the Argentine from Tottenham Hotspurs.

The England international had spells at Everton and Besiktas and it did not work out as fans only remember him for the wrong reasons.

Dele Alli is still an Everton player, and may likely enjoy a fresh start under Sean Dyche in pre-season, though he has a long way to go to prove he still has the ability to play week in, week out in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino said he wants to speak to Alli to find out “what is going on” in a recent interview.

“I hope to have some time to call and see because he is a great guy,” the Argentine said. “I want to talk a bit with him. I want to help him and see what is going on.

“He’s still young. For sure, he has the mentality.”

Dele Alli has been in pre-season training with Everton this week in preparation for the new season but has four weeks to prove himself.

Recall we reported that critics have questioned his off-the-field antics in recent times, with the most recent event being when he was pictured surrounded by gas canisters with a balloon in his mouth.

During their time at Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino and Dele Alli came close to winning the Premier League in 2015/16 season before they lost out in the 2019 Champions League final to Liverpool.

These events were Tottenham’s closest move to try and win a trophy since 2008.

Alli bagged 18 goals and made 11 assists in the 2016/17 season, a year after scoring 10 goals and 12 assists in the Premier League.

His career soon took a dramatic turn ever since Pochettino left Tottenham, however, given that he is 27, there is still more time to bounce back.

What Happened To Alli?

Under then-Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, Dele Alli was one of the brightest players in European football.

From the moment Pochettino was fired by Tottenham, Dele Alli’s career seems to have dwindled.

During the “Mauricio Era” Alli could never be wrong and was always a contender for ‘Goal of the Month’ with some awesome goals and was linked to some of the best clubs in Europe.

It looked like the Everton loanee had a good relationship with the Argentine and his departure might have been a sole reason for his drop in form.

Alli ended up moving to Everton for a fee of £40m with add-ons to see if he could give his career the major boost it now seemed to need.

Unfortunately, that did not happen and Everton immediately shipped him off to Turkish club Besiktas on loan.

Pochettino was appointed the manager of Premier League side Southampton in 2013, where he led them to an 8th-place finish which was their best-ever finish.

From Southampton, he moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 2014 and finished as EPL runner-up in the 2016–17 season and also reached the UEFA Champions League final in 2019.

He was dismissed from Spurs after a run of poor results, and then in 2021, he moved to France, joining Paris Saint-Germain, where he won Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France.
